A big thank you to the volunteers from AON who gave up their time to volunteer at the MND NSW Centre at Gladesville on 27 June and 6 July. They completed lots of jobs including stocktaking, packing our wonderful Christmas cards and cleaning equipment in the equipment bay. Their contribution was amazing and very much appreciated by everyone here at MND NSW.
